I just wanted to mention that Jeremy has also created a Install under Xen
Also, while that HOWTO does give a brief overview of how Xen compares to some
"other virtualization technologies", it would be nice if someone in the know
would create a document that gives a little more information in that area.
Maybe even including a compare and contrast table that lists Xen, VMWare,
Bochs, QEMM and any other relevantly related program, and when and why (or
why not) you might use each one, etc.
Source Mage GNU/Linux: Linux so advanced, it may as well be magic.
